Emergency Dentist Near Me

WE ARE OPEN FOR EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE

Slider

Are You Looking for "Emergency Dentist Near Me?"

We are living in tumultuous times.

The COVID-19 virus has spread far and wide and has affected us all personally and as a community and a country. However, I strongly believe we are resilient and determined people and will overcome this virus!

The good news according to Governor Gavin Newsom is the virus is stabilizing in California, primarily due to social distancing efforts and the governor has plans to present this week the states "six key areas as part of our road map to recovery."

For the time being, and to comply with the governor's mandate Willow Pass Dental Care will remain closed to patients seeking non-emergency dental care. However, we are available to help you with urgent or emergency dental care.

Do You Require Emergency Dental Care?

We are continuing to perform necessary services for customers who require urgent dental care.

The best way to determine if you have an emergency dental care situation that requires a private appointment is to give us a call or chat us by clicking the blue icon in the bottom right-hand corner on our website.

While our office is closed for routine dental care services, we are still taking calls to help patients evaluate urgent dental care needs and concerns --- as well as add you to our priority appointment list when we begin routine dental care services. You can reach us at 925-326-6114 to schedule an assessment via telephone or again just click the chat icon in the lower right-hand corner of this page.

To help patients evaluate if they may have a dental emergency, please refer to the following checklist. Here are 5 signs you may have a dental emergency:

1. Intense dental pain

Dental pain (or oral pain) that is severe and constant should not be ignored.

Severe oral pain is a clear sign that something is wrong. Severe and constant oral pain should not be confused with mild, dull, or occasional pain.

2. Dental infection

Dental infections can be dangerous if left untreated.

If you are experiencing the discharge of pus, bad breath, pain, swelling, or a rancid taste in your mouth, you may have a severe oral infection. This is a serious health concern that warrants a call to our office immediately.

This is particularly important for our patients who have recently received dental implants. Infections around or near the site of the implant could cause the implant to fail. Containing infection as quickly as possible is the only way to save an implant.

Dental infection

3. Broken, loose, or lost implant

A dental implant with structural damage or failure may cause further oral damage if left unaddressed. This is particularly true if the implant becomes loose or falls out.

4. Broken tooth

A broken tooth (or loose tooth) that has experienced structural damage or failure may also cause further oral damage if left unaddressed. Damaged teeth can still be salvaged or even saved if they are swiftly cared for.

Broken tooth

5. Chronic bleeding gums

Chronic bleeding gums can be a sign of advanced periodontal disease, also known as periodontitis. In rare cases, severe bleeding of the gums can even be a sign of oral cancer. In both cases, patients are encouraged to call our office. Both periodontal disease and oral cancer can spread quickly if left undiagnosed and unaddressed. A little blood from brushing and flossing is not indicative of an oral health emergency. However, constant or even heavy bleeding should be taken very seriously.

5 Ways We Protect Our Patients

The number one way we protect our patients due to the coronavirus pandemic is by closing to the general public. Instead, patients who require urgent dental care will receive a private scheduled appointment for emergency dental care procedures only.

To further ensure the safety of our patients, we are also rigorously enforcing the following 5 protective practices:

Whole-clinic sterilization and sanitation

Willow Pass Dental Care is thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.

To help stop the spread of coronavirus, we have implemented an additional per-patient cleaning regimen. All surfaces and facility equipment that may come in contact with a patient are cleaned before and after each appointment. This includes surfaces such as counters and drawers, as well as the dentist’s chair and examination equipment. Per usual operating standards, all of our dental tools are sterilized after each use, or disposed of appropriately.

Sterilization Process - Concord Dentist

Manadatory handwashing for all staff and doctors

Handwashing is always mandatory. We require all of our staff and partners to adhere to strict hand washing standards per CDC guidelines.

Prevention and Treatment Tips for COVID-19

Protective equipment for patients and staff

We provide our patients and staff with protective equipment, including masks and gloves, to minimize any potential for constant transmission of the virus.

Protective equipment - Dentist Concord, CA

Private appointments

We are closed for routine dental care and walk-in patients. We are only accepting private appointments for urgent dental care services. This reduces overall traffic in our facility and promotes social distancing.

Social distancing

Patient & Staff Screening

We screen our urgent and emergency patients and staff for signs of coronavirus. This may include a visual screening as well as screening for elevated temperatures indicative of fever.

Coronavirus Explained

Keeping You Safe Through the Coronavirus Pandemic

Our number one priority is, and will always be, the safety of our patients.

If you would like to be at the top of our list to be contacted for an appointment when we return to our normal hours, let us know and our team will reach out to you before we open our schedule to the public.

Appointments available 7am-7pm on weekdays. Saturday appointments available.
